    Is the 1 input on the normal side the high input (humbuckers) and the 2 low imput (single coil)?

    Is it ok to use the bass side with a guitar?

    You can use any input at any time. Typically, the bass channel doesn't sound very good for guitar but by changing a few capacitors it will rawk with the best of em'/

    High means louder. You can use either type of pickup in either input, but if you didn't use High all the time you'd be more likely to use humbuckers in the low input.

    Most people just use the high input all the time.

    Some people use "high" for single coils (or lower output pickups) and "low" for buckers. As Mike said you can use whatever.

    I always used the first input on the normal channel on my bassman whether using humbuckers or single coils. Turn up to 4 or 5 and boost with your OD/dist/fuzz of choice. Awesome rock amp IMO. Wish I never sold it...

    I found the Bass side to sound better.
    Jumpering is good too....

    Kinda depends on which circuit. The earlier models have a killer bass channel, for guitar.
